Erin Brandao

I took my first yoga class in college in the early 2000’s and all I can remember about it is that I always fell asleep in savasana, the resting post at the end of every class. A workout that ended with a nap sounded pretty good to me!

Over the next few years I flirted off and on with yoga until it became an integral part of my life and recovery after the death of my mother. The first time someone suggested I could be a teacher myself, I laughed and said no way. Good thing karma has a sense of humor too, because in 2011 I became certified through Namah Shivaya’s teacher training program and now I serve as one of the lead trainers for that same program.

What I love most about yoga is its diversity. There is a yoga style, class, or teacher for everyone. I teach active physically challenging classes like Ashtanga and all levels flow, relaxing and accessible options like restorative and gentle, as well as a weekly yoga class just for kids!

Yoga has given me so many gifts, from physical health to mental peace to spiritual awakening, and I would love to share the gifts of yoga with you as well. Sign up for a group class or contact the studio to book a private lesson with me and begin your own journey today!
